Not as hard headed as I thought...

Today for the very first time ever, I bailed on a CrossFit workout.  Yesterday, I had a great workout, but my hair was bugging the crap out of me.  So today, I remembered to pull it back.  Went to CF this morning (3rd day in a row, thank you very much!) and it started off fine.  800m warm up run, lost of good warm up activities, then it was time to work on handstands.

I was actually excited about that because I'm getting decent at doing them against the wall, even being able to balance myself away from the wall some.  So I kicked myself up to the wall and immediately, my arms buckled.  No big deal, I would just plop down to my head then come down.  As I plopped on my head...searing pain.  What the?  Then I remembered that I had pulled my hair back with a mini-clip.  That little devil was embedding itself into my head. 

Once I realized what was happening, I threw away the demolished clip and got a drink of water.  Never one to just roll over, I did a few more handstands, but I started not feeling so great, so I just waited the few minutes until the start of the WOD.  It was 7 rounds: 35 double unders (or lateral hops) & 1 power clean at 85#.  I did the first 35 lateral hops and as I started to do the power clean, everything went black.  Oopsie!  So, I waited a little and tried the jumps again, but every single time, things would fade to gray.  So, I gave up.  I know that it was the right thing to do.  It has been over 2 hours and I still feel a bit woozey, but I HATE quitting.  I will just have to get back on the horse Friday.

I only earned 15 points yesterday which was a little disappointing, but I will keep at it!

HUGS!

I'm glad you bailed on the workout. I need you to be 100%. It is better to have walked away then to pass out.

Head injuries, even if they seem minor should be taken very seriously hon. I'm glad that you stopped the workout. It's very important to listen to your body.

it would have sucked if you passed out at the gym...or maybe your gym boy friend would have come to your rescue and done some mouth to mouth?
Anyway, hope you feel better. Drink lots of water and back at it when you are fully recovered!
